Of Gandhi in Malaysia.....

This is a poster of the great man, Gandhi. The poster was used by the peaceful demonstrators in a rally organized by HINDRAF to highlight the claimed unfair treatments received by the Indian community in Malaysia







This is the picture of Hishamuddin, the Youth chief of a Malay based political party in Malaysia.







No insensitivity intended. I am not trying to compare the great man, Ghandi, with a lesser known politician.

Maybe I have a pair of cock eyes. But the facial features of Gandhi and Hishamuddin look quite similar to me. If Gandhi is still alive today and stand next to Hishamuddin, I would probably mistaken Hishamuddin as son of Ghandi. Hmmm, no malice intended. I do wonder, whether Gandhi has Malay blood or Hishamuddin has Indian blood running somewhere along the family ancestry.....

Gandhi is a peaceful man who inspire civil disobedience in India that send the Ketuanan Mat Salleh back to where they belong. Whatever it is, civil disobedience as taken root in Malaysia...........
